Hamble Wrecks

Up river between the railway and motorway bridges the eastern bank of the Hamble is undeveloped and home to a few disintegrating wrecks

Above the remains of what looks like a plywood constructed yacht which as far as it's possible to tell probably looked quite pretty in it's day.

 The bows of a steel barge or lighter, as late as the post war years and maybe in to the early 1960's barges were still in use ferrying bricks and other products from the Bursledon Brickworks.
